Legalizing Abortion in Chile Would Have Dire Consequences



Laws protecting unborn life could soon be swept away in Chile, a deeply pro-life South American nation—if the far-left socialist Chilean President Michelle Bachelet gets her way.

Abortion is Never the Answer for Pregnant Women with Zika



  Abortion advocates have attempted to lobby and shame pro-life Latin American countries into legalizing abortion for women who may contract the Zika virus.

A New Dawn of Reproductive Freedom in China?



Washington, D.C.—Under China’s new two-child policy, forced and coercive abortions and sterilizations will continue, according to a panel of experts on China’s one-child policy who testified in a hearing before the Congressional-Executive Commission on China (CECC) on Capitol Hill last Thursday.

Planned Parenthood Flouts FDA Guidelines for RU-486



Planned Parenthood and the abortion-provider Tucson Women’s Center spearheaded a lawsuit to strike down an Arizona law requiring doctors to abide by FDA guidelines when administering a “drug or substance” used to induce abortion. And they prevailed. An Arizona state court ruled in their favor, a ruling which allows doctors to continue off-label usage of the risky mifepristone (RU-486) drug.

The Wisdom of the Church’s Teaching on Marriage



From individuals, to families, to the general population at-large, marriage is essential to society. A committed marriage provides the best arrangement for the well-being of both spouses and children.
